4 in a row...going strong!

Up at 5:50 a.m.- packed lunches, folded a load of laundry, emptied dishwasher wished Aubrey well as she left for school. Vacation is's a sad thing, it's been so cold here that I have to admit I was getting used to sleeping in a bit and cuddling up and watching movies. Christmas Holiday was definitely a well needed and appreciated rest. Today started off productive, and ended that way! It has been a good day. After making Hayden breakfast and seeing him off, I got busy in the office. Paul and I rearranged it, cleaned it, went through everything and threw out 3 garbage bags full. I balanced the check book (and trust me that takes awhile, I've let it go lately) then we cleaned up the garage and managed to get all the Christmas stuff to storage. Now I'm relaxing, and hoping to watch a good movie. No such luck, I've channel surfed and out of all my 500 channels I can't find one interesting thing. Ha! I remember the days when I was young and had 4 channels. I could always find something then. What's going on? Is my mind just so over stimulated by this modern world that I can't adjust. Or, is it that TV is really lousey most of the time? I think that's what it is. So anyway I'll get to it...keep me honest...what have I put in my mouth today?
Breakfast: 1 egg scrambled, oatmeal with a little dab of yogurt, fresh blueberries and strawberries. 4 oz. fresh OJ.
Lunch: Bowl of my homemade minestrone and an ezekiel turkey sandwich with fresh basil and tomato.
Dinner: small bowl of my homemade minestrone, 4-5 oz. grilled sirloin steak, and a small caesar salad with tomato and cucumber.
Snack: handfull of blueberries...
LOTS Of always.
Well another good day...was planning to got to gym for strength training but didn't get there. It's okay though I was busy all day and there is tomorrow.

(Aubrey, Hayden and Paul). I never really even craved sugar????? Am I back or what?
Breakfast: 2 slices Ezekiel Toast w/ fresh ground peanut butter. 1/2 of a banana and water.
Lunch: California Rolls and water
Dinner: Hamburger (no bun) onion, lettuce, tomato, small salad with Balsamic dressing.
Snack: small organic apple, 4 Kashi crackers, Green tea, and lot's of water... or 5 dark choc. yogurt covered prunes. (small)- oh I nibbled on some soup (1/4 cup) (It will be ready tomorrow)
The kids go back to school tomorrow and it is my last week of SCF vacation. I plan to accomplish a lot of tasks in the office and get everything pending done. I'm gonna appreciate my brain time off for one more week.
Night Night...Brrr it's really cold out, feels good!

It's a New Year, It's a New Day, It's a New Me!

Happy 2010- so it started yesterday, I figured why not end on a right note as well. No sugar and an hour walk for 12-31-09...I have done it before and it felt great. I remember telling people that I felt like I was 18 again, so why then did I revert to my old ways? That is the question I am planning to answer and resolve this year. I still haven't drank a soda in over 5 or maybe 6 years ago, and I haven't missed it at all. So anyway my goal for 2010 is to conquer this sugar addiction and eat healthy and exercise daily. I can do it, I will do it.
So for breakfast today I had:
(My usual): Oatmeal with a spoonful of strawberry yogurt (sugar free), fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries and 2 eggs scrambled. 4 oz. of fresh squeezed OJ and 16 oz. of water...
Lunch: 1 lettuce wrap and brown rice beef and broccoli/ water
Dinner: 2 eggs/ 2 strips bacon/ 2 slice ezekiel bread/ water
snack: apple/ nuts
Walked 31/2 miles ran 1 mile


Fun at the beach
